For Lucy Fenton, the Fenton & Fenton Fall Collection is a chance to show how Winter can be embraced within the home; “I want to remind people that it means more time spent inside enjoying our homes. Winter is all about cuddling up on a comfortable sofa with a chunky blanket and a glass of red. We want people to embrace that and appreciate the intimacy our homes provide.”

As well as welcoming design elements such as leather furniture, silk carpets, chunky throws and lots of cushions, the Fenton & Fenton Fall Collection focuses on a rich colour palette, courtesy of Haymes Paint. The hero colour of the Fall shoot is ‘Light Off’ by Haymes, which is a rich navy blue. “It may well be my favourite colour to date,” says Lucy. “It is really dark and moody but still so inviting and cosy. We paired the navy with a lot of our tan leather pieces, textured grey linens and silks as well as bright colourful artwork which really pops against the dark walls.”

 Haymes paint colour: Aleaha Rose

“The lovely soft pale pinks and bright pinks make the room inviting.”

Contrasting beautifully with this is ‘Aleaha Rose’, a beautiful dusky pink colour. “It’s so pretty and inviting and makes you feel happy even on the dreariest of days.” Teamed with natural leathers and a colour palette of greys, more pinks and even reds, this statement colour brings true warmth into an interior.

Lucy advises to pair darker colours with some bright artwork, a rug and add multiple layers and textures, and to remember that just because the room is dark, it doesn’t mean everything in the room also needs to be. “The lovely soft pale pinks and bright pinks make the room inviting. Pastels have a whole new look when they are offset with the really dark wall and I love that. It really means you can enjoy the best of both worlds, the dark moody hues and the soft pastels all at once.”
